RAID log template

Identify the risks, assumptions, issues, and dependencies associated with a project.

A RAID log is a project planning tool that focuses on four key areas: risks, assumptions, issues, and dependencies. Risks are events that could have an adverse effect if they occur, assumptions are things you assume will happen to contribute to the project’s success (and that will have negative consequences if they don’t occur), issues are risks that have already occurred and had a negative impact on the project, and dependencies are things that must start or finish so your project can progress. RAID logs are often used when beginning a new project, but they’re also useful for promoting alignment and sharing status for projects that are already underway.

About the RAID log template

What does RAID stand for?

RAID generally stands for Risks, Assumptions, Issues, and Dependencies. Some project managers use it to stand for Risks, Actions, Issues, and Decisions.

How do you set up a RAID log?

This template is set up as a square with four quadrants: risks, assumptions, issues, and dependencies. All members of a project can participate when the initial RAID log is created to contribute their perspective. The RAID log is also a useful tool for sharing status updates with stakeholders and promoting team alignment as a project progresses.
